Welcome to the IHI Code Club!

The IHI Code Club is a volunteer-led group based at the UCL Institute of Health Informatics aiming to introduce and encourage good coding practice and reproducibility in computational research.

Our activities include meetings to solve and share experience on technical code-related issues, hands-on tutorial, and talks by our members or invited speakers. For more details, please refer to the Sessions page.

We are commited to create a diverse, inclusive, and friendly community! Please read the 8 Rules of the Code Club for more info on our code of conduct.
